Daytona Company To Donate Land to UF 4-H Camp
GAINESVILLE—The University of Florida’s Department of 4-H and Other Youth Programs will formally accept a donation of land from a Daytona Beach company at a celebration set for Oct. 28 near Lake Placid.
The Consolidated Tomoka Land Co. will officially transfer to the UF Foundation a deed for 24 acres of property earmarked for the Camp Cloverleaf 4-H Center. The public is invited to the ceremony from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
The property is being donated by the Consolidated Tomoka Land Co. to enhance programs and educational opportunities at Camp Cloverleaf. This is not Consolidated’s first gift to UF. In 1949, the 86-year-old Daytona Beach land company helped establish Camp Cloverleaf with a gift of 26 acres. This newest endowment will bring Camp Cloverleaf’s total land area to 50 acres.
Plans for the new site include an interpretive trail and outdoor programs organized by the Highlands County School District. The 4-H summer camp programs held at this site will also benefit through the enhancement of natural resource education activities.
